Looking for change with a digital pinhole camera

Philippe Thier


The changes happening in Katendrecht impact the way people live in the area. It is a physical change causing invisible change. How do people interact with one another and the place? The project seeks to visualize interactions by applying a combination of analog pinhole photography and the digital long exposure photography thereby photographing new features and elements of the process of taking a picture. By building a pinhole camera and recording its image layer from inside of it with a digital camera, it visualizes the collaborative process of the two devices. New features appear such as the disappearance of building above the skyline, movement, as well as the interaction such device causes with the subject.
